Death and Politics at the end of the world

Sunday is the day I am going to be posting from my WIP so bear with me. If you are lost you can go back and read the first few pages here. The character is driving and this section is stream of consciousness so you are jumping right in to her drive down to Key West...(Thanks for any input you care to give!!) Little note: I think the paragraph immediately following this will be formatted differently... not in a paragraph. On the blog I'll leave it for now but visualize it as a chain down the left side of the paper with each shade and size of font on a different line. I think it works better...   

Maybe I should call, has to be there has to be she can’t be gone—mistake has to be—missing? That can’t be right She can’t be. Missing Went for a drive and ran out of… or maybe just needs time. Time? Maybe met someone. Left Dave? No. Can’t be right! Loves Dave. Means the world to her. She’d never. Don’t believe it for an instant. But she’s… Missing. Time for herself working too hard stress restaurant not doing wellmaybe.    Said “gone” right? GONE as in they don’t know where she is. Didn’t mean deanot dead. Gone dead?  She’s MISSINGMurdered? Oh my go- NO It can’t be that! Too terrible Think logically, doesn’t make sense. Make Sense All right… She doesn’t just take off. Not a runner, a fighter. If things weren’t going well? she wouldn’t justnot a bird. NOT her But if she were taken by force she would fight and they might… OH MY GOD
                                    The median!
Pay attention, drive, can’t think about it right now.

So high… swerve… Dive! Dive!
Eyes on the road—
A tiny key, Mini Key… Mini Mouse Key

Searching for my lost shigger of salt-

Some people claim that there’s a ma-an-n to blame- Yeah there is---
It’s his damn fault.

Nearly there.

What was that music…?     
                                     Something like…

So magical: Should have fairies,             
Palm trees forget this

Or, forgetting specialists, hmm---
In the real world…  bartenders
Six miles.
